From 6 to 27 and More: the European Union Faced With the Challenges of the Enlargement
What future for the process of European enlargement? Which scenarios for the European Union and for the candidate countries? How are potential enlargement rounds and the current debates on both sides of the Union's borders perceived as? It is these questions that the Annual Conference of the Master in European Affairs, Sciences Po, and the Association Jean Monnet – in cooperation with the Foundation Robert Schuman – want to find the answers to during the two days of conferences on 28 and 29 April 2011.
This study will start on thursday 28 April at the House of Jean Monnet, the symbolical birthplace of the European Union, with a round table dealing with enlargemen of the European Union to include the Balkan region. Experts and political figures will discuss this question with the participants of the project “We Are Europeans” from six different Balkan countries and from universities across Paris.
On Friday 29 April, a conference of ambassadors will sketch an inventory including the position of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, of the candidate and potential candidate countries.
This will be followed by the conference “Candidate Countries: With or Without You?”, an event organised by a group of eight students of Sciences Po with the main goal to bring together students, researchers, and professionals around the question of enlargement. Three round tables, each of them dealing with a particular aspect of enlargement, will strive to offer a new and original point of view on this debate accompanying the unification of Europe.
